The blaim for this situation lies with Khrushchev, who when he was in power re-drew the internal Soviet Union borders and transfered Crimea and Donbass from Russian SSR to Ukranian SSR. I make this important point for those who may be mislead by propoganda that says these areas are some Ukranian homeland since creation, and some do say this.. These areas are Russian, Crimea was conquered and settled by the Russian Empire, not some non existent Ukranian state. In 1991 the drunken idiot Yeltsin made a pact with the then head of Ukranian SSR, Leonid Kravchuk, to keep the unrealistic borders created by Khrushchev, an ethnic Ukranian..... This ridiculous situation has been seized upon by the EU, US and fascists in Ukraine to cause trouble between Russia and Ukraine, and to take Ukraine into EU and then NATO. Nothing good will come of this. This situation receives hardly any attention in the West, and even then it is very heavily biased against Russia, ethnic Russians in Ukraine, and the reality of history. If the idiot Yeltsin had not given away Russian areas of Ukranian SSR, then this situation would not be happening. There would be disquiet about direction a, so far, fictional state of Western Ukraine, with capital in Lvov perhaps, is taking, but the situation would not be so dangerous as it is now. Believe me, this situation is potentially very dangerous and perhaps the only way to resolve this is to have a plebicite in Donbass and Crimea to ask if population wants to be Russian or Ukranian. They have never been given any choice before, they shoud be given one now, and EU and US should keep their noses out.
